Why this post today? Because the “Rule” is so detailed, and just another nail in the coffin of our freedoms. A “Rule” comes out of nowhere and defines who we are. We knew this was going to get tough as the days wind down, and the end game is in play. Oh, by the way, “they” will allow an exception for special occasions. Lucky us.
New rules stemming from the school lunch law championed by first lady Michelle Obama are banning popular children’s cereals like Frosted Flakes in daycare centers.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a final rule Monday that will affect more than 3 million kids in daycare centers across the country. The regulation will only allow daycare centers to serve juice once a day, will ban fried foods, and encourages centers to not add honey to a child’s yogurt.
The sugar limit means no Lucky Charms, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Cap’n Crunch, or Frosted Flakes.The law required the USDA to “promote health and wellness in child care settings via guidance and technical assistance that focuses on nutrition, physical activity, and limiting electronic media use,” according to the regulation.
“This final rule prohibits frying as a way a preparing food on-site,” according to the document. “Frying is defined as deep-fat frying (i.e. cooking by submerging food in hot oil or other fat). This definition of frying was recommended by commenters and continues to allow providers to sauté, pan-fry, and stir-fry.”
The government explained that fish can be served “ if it is pan-fried or prepared another way, as long as it is not cooked by submerging the bread into hot oil or other fat.”
Centers will be allowed to serve cheese, cottage cheese, and yogurt, as long as it has fewer than 23 grams of sugar per 6 ounces. The first version of the regulation would have banned cheese, cottage cheese, and “cheese food, or spread.”
The government said it will allow daycare centers to break the rules for special occasions like birthdays, but urged centers to “use discretion.”
